"You, me and we all have the right to be respected"

They have also had multiple experiences with anti-Asian racism, say the seven members of what is currently the most famous K-pop band. “We endured swear words for no reason and were ridiculed for our looks. We were even asked why Asians speak English. "

The text goes on to say: “We cannot put into words the pain of being the object of hatred and violence for such a reason. Our own experiences are insignificant compared to the events of the past few weeks. But these experiences are enough to make us pass out and put our self-esteem at risk. "

Most recently, BTS called for an end to discrimination against Asian and Asian people once and for all: “You, me and we all have the right to be respected. We will stand together. "
